Overview

Ready to commit to using more CSS on your sites?  If you are a hands-on
learner who has been toying with CSS and want to experiment with real-world
projects that will enable you to see how CSS can help resolve design issues,
this book is written just for you! CSS master Eric A. Meyer has picked up
where Eric Meyer on CSS: Mastering the Language of Web Design left off.  He
has compiled 10 new, highly useful projects designed to encourage you to
incorporate CSS into your sites and take advantage of the design
flexibility, increased accessibility, decreased page weight, and cool visual
effects CSS offers.

Each project is laid out in an easy-to-follow, full color format complete
with notes, warnings, and sidebars to help you learn through example rather
than theory.  Some of the concepts covered include:

• Converting an HTML-based design to a pure positioning layout
• Styling a photo gallery
• Using background images to achieve cross-browser translucency effects
• Using lists of links to create tabs and drop down menus without the use of
  JavaScript
• Styling weblog entries, and placing them in a full-page design
• Creating a design for the CSS Zen Garden

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
For years, the experts have sworn by one CSS book: Eric Meyer on CSS. Now most web pros are using CSS -- and More Eric Meyer on CSS is the perfect follow-up. Its hands-on projects will help you use CSS in more projects, with more confidence.

Meyer starts with a project you’ll doubtless encounter (if you haven’t already): revamping a tables-based site for CSS. You’ll style photo collections, financial reports, and weblogs. You’ll build list-based and CSS-driven drop-down menus. You’ll learn how to create translucent effects that many CSS users thought were impossible; and build stunning tab-based layouts (not the “boxy” ones you’ve seen).

You’ve heard the claim that CSS can do just about anything: this book is proof. Bill Camarda

    Branching Out With Cascading Style Sheets

    I hope the book, More Eric Meyers on CSS, took a long time to write because it'd take me 8 years to appreciate everything he's packed into it. His designs are clever and they work. He pays attention to details. He knows browser behaviors. Saying this book is good just doesn't do it somehow. I admire his idealism and commitment to Web standards. I depend on browsers supporting tables well. Eliminating tables from page design never occurred to me until I started reading Eric Meyer's CSS books. I use tricks like pixel shims but what the blank? I find design-arounds. Unfortunately, tables are rigid, even when tools like Adobe's ImageReady's slices disguise them well. Now that I understand table-less pages better I'll be reading more on CSS. I've read Eric's, Cascading Style Sheets: The Definitive Guide. It's great! Be sure to keep it handy. You'll use it while reading his other books. Too bad the rules don't translate themselves into Web pages. The rules seem clear enough but using them is another matter. Eric's examples, in the first 31 pages of this book, take a table dependent page apart step by step, then reassemble it, piece by piece, using CSS's selectors and declaration blocks. By following his examples I learned how cascading style sheet rules coordinate. I'm reminded of the small programs that linux depends on. Translating CSS theory into practice is what this book is all about. I'm branching out with CSS.
